PSALM 123
METER:  10 10 10 10
SUGGESTED TUNE:  EVENTIDE
This is the same meter as the hymn "Abide with Me"

1.  I lift my eyes to you, en-throned in heav'n.
    As serv-ants' eyes look to their mas-ter's hand,
    Or as a maid un-to her mis-tress looks,
    We look to God, until he mer-cy shows.
2.  Have mer-cy, Lord, have mer-cy, Lord, on us,
    For we have had more than e-nough con-tempt.
    We've had e-nough con-tempt from wealth-y ones,
    Proud ones have scorned us more than we can bear.
